K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s time to start getting in the festive spirit on today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because I set the theme of Christmas lights on Friday.

I braved the crowds of seasonal shoppers with Audrey on Saturday, so we went for a wander around town and across the square, where I took advantage of shiny paving provided by the recent rain to add a little something to my shots of the sparkling trees.

I also had a little muck about with one of them, because I can’t help it.

And here’s a gif of our groovy black fibre-optic Christmas tree in all its colourful glory.

See what glittering delights K’lee has to show you, HERE.

Now it’s your turn to dazzle us…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

This week’s slightly late prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by my choice of theme and it’s a topical one; Christmas lights.

Simple, succinct and unambiguous for a change, so see if you can find something to illuminate Monday’s post over the weekend.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I thought I’d employ the rather lazy “look around the house and garden” technique to find inspiration for K’lee’s prompt; Unusual tones or textures and here’s what I found.

Some nice knots in the pine fence panels; an seasonally variegated clematis leaf; the intricate lacy patterns on a melon rind and the distinctly underwater feel of the light shining through our ever-reliable rippled glass kitchen door (making its third appearance on the challenge) onto the textured plaster of the ceiling.

See what colours and contours K’lee came up with HERE.

Now show us what you brought to the photo party.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

K’lee is the one with thematic duties for the next K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and he’s chosen you a prompt that could take you almost anywhere; Unusual tones or textures.

So there you have it, your homework for the weekend is to find us some textural tidbits to display for Monday’s post.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s optical odyssey on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I chose a theme which gives you almost unlimited scope for subjects, just as long as they are all taken; From an unusual angle.

I found inspiration in the kitchen and at the pub; where I was preparing for a belated ex-pat Thanksgiving dinner (our various schedules finally overlapped yesterday) and playing pool with Audrey, respectively.

A cheese grater, a colander and a tin can all made for interestingly contoured reflective surfaces, and a glass block wall in the pub and Audrey’s evil stare across the pool table add a bit of variety.

See what degree of creativity K’lee takes with his unusual perspectives HERE.

Now, however, it’s your turn to show us whatcha got…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

For some reason I was thinking it was K’lee’s turn to choose the theme yesterday, hence the lateness of this, your prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I know we’ve been here before, but I like the element of guesswork involved when we take photos; From an unusual angle.

So try to find an interesting way to picture your photographic subjects and puzzle us with your pictures on Monday.

Cosmic Photo redux.

So, after settling for simple and straightforward pictures on the Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, I just couldn’t resist playing with one of the originally rejected shots. This one of Audrey about to exit the snow globe, which I didn’t use because of the reflection across it, suddenly seemed to have potential…

…so I stared to muck around with it.

Hmm, nice rich colours, how about…

Ooh yes, I like that, now what about if I just…

Wow, now we’re really getting somewhere, but I still think I could…

Ahhh, yep, that’s the one.

Never stop mucking about, you never know what might happen.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I’ve decided to go the simple route for a change and just post straight photos to illustrate K’lee’s theme of; The look and feel of gratitude.

The one thing I’m constantly grateful for is my family, so any excuse to feature them on the blog is very welcome indeed.

We have had a difficult few weeks; with Rhonda and I both looking for new jobs, the tenuous juggling of our finances and battling the intractable Home Office, life sometimes seems as if it’s determined to break us down. But if there’s one thing I can rely on, it’s the way Audrey is always happy with the smallest of treats and surprises.

Which is why it was so nice to see the look of glee on her face when she finally got to be a penguin at the weekend.

Yes, you read that right, Audrey finally realised her dream of being a penguin in the snow. Well, maybe not exactly, but I think the photos below will explain.

On Saturday we missed Barnstaple Christmas lights being turned on, (usually by some z-list celebrity pushing a button, accompanied by a bit of live music on the town square) but yesterday we did wander around the small fair along the riverfront, where Audrey tried her luck on the hook-a-duck stall and won some sort of squishy ball thing which she was inordinately pleased with.

However, the thing that really made her day was the giant inflatable snow globe that was set up to provide Christmassy photo opportunities, particularly as she happened to be wearing her fluffy penguin hoodie at the time.

Find out what K’lee is grateful for HERE, later.

Now it’s time to show us some gratitude.
